ASU Electronic Theses and Dissertations


This collection includes most of the ASU Theses and Dissertations from 2011 to present. ASU Theses and Dissertations are available in downloadable PDF format; however, a small percentage of items are under embargo. Information about the dissertations/theses includes degree information, committee members, an abstract, supporting data or media.

In addition to the electronic theses found in the ASU Digital Repository, ASU Theses and Dissertations can be found in the ASU Library Catalog.

Dissertations and Theses granted by Arizona State University are archived and made available through a joint effort of the ASU Graduate College and the ASU Libraries. For more information or questions about this collection contact or visit the Digital Repository ETD Library Guide or contact the ASU Graduate College at gradformat@asu.edu.


Lateral Double-diffused (LDMOS) transistors are commonly used in power management, high voltage/current, and RF circuits. Their characteristics include high breakdown voltage, low on-resistance, and compatibility with standard CMOS and BiCMOS manufacturing processes. As with other semiconductor devices, an accurate and physical compact model is critical for LDMOS-based circuit design. The goal of this research work is to advance the state-of-the-art by developing a physics-based scalable compact model of LDMOS transistors. The new model, SP-HV, is constructed from a surface-potential-based bulk MOSFET model, PSP, and a nonlinear resistor model, R3. The use of independently verified and mature sub-models leads to increased …
